Supporters still hopeful as market plan put on hold

Have your say

PLANS for a large-scale Sunday market in Banbridge have been stymied by the local council - but those behind the venture are hopeful it will yet go ahead.

Speaking after last week’s meeting of Banbridge District Council when the market proposal was discussed - but not approved - a spokesperson for Event Management and Crowd Safety Services (EMCSS), the group behind the project, said he remained optimistic.

“I am not disappointed at present because an earlier vote against the market, taken by the Environmental Services committee before Christmas, was not ratified by the full council which is still considering the proposal,” he said. “Last week some councillors said they had not been given enough information, so I also took the opportunity to present each councillor with a copy of the detailed proposal document.”
